Warning given to Lincoln car park racers


Anti-social motorists in Lincoln are being warned they could lose their cars if they continue to disturb residents.

Police said there had been complaints of racing and dangerous manoeuvres in and around the NCP car park in St Mary's Street at weekends.

This has been aggravated by the noise from sound systems and modified exhausts, they added.

Officers said they would be patrolling the area and warning drivers they could have their vehicles seized.

Police said anyone involved in vehicle-related anti-social behaviour can be issued with a written Section 59 warning.

Once this has been issued, if they are caught acting in the same manner within 12 months, officers have the right to seize their vehicle.

To get their car back they must pay the police £150 with an extra £20-a-day storage charge.
